was the campaign? >> well, first it was a very close election in ohio and ohio was one of key states, even if we won ohio, turns out the electoral vote count would have gone to president obama. we lost by two points in ohio. recall back in 2004 when john kerry lost to george bush he would often say both publicly and to me on the floor of the senate, but for half the people that could fit in the ohio state stadium called the horseshoe i would be president today. it was a very narrow victory. i do think there were some reasons that are almost technical that some of you understand well. there are some folks here from silicon valley who are very good at social media and their turnout efforts, the democrats, were quite effective. if you look at the numbers, after the fact, the turnout for democrats among their base was better than we expected. i would say better than they expected based on their polling and their sampling. so, you know, they did a better job than we did getting their voters to the polls. mitt romney got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio and still came within two points. the techno
. >> also a member of the ways and means committee, certain element state senate with president obama, so you have a history there as well. first of all let me get you to respond to what you heard from chris van hollen, particularly on issues of taxes and this notion of ad hominem republicans should be prepared to extend the bush tax cuts for those earning less than $250,000 a year. >> well, i think there's ambiguity on the democratic side of the aisle, and then there's something that chris didn't say and that we haven't heard from the president's of ambiguity is who is rich? there's 250 description, 500, a million, a great deal of ambiguity. there's not been a clear discussion on impact of the past through entities for example, to i represent suburban chicago and many other folks across both sides of the aisle, represent entities that are organized as pastors, and very little discussion beyond sort of the bumper sticker rhetoric on the impact on pastors as relates to these high rates. the second thing is, did you notice really what we haven't heard from the white house? what we haven't h
states and there's something kind of breathtaking about that. if steve is right and if, you know, obama care, the kind of seat of obama care is his legacy, what's doubly interesting there is how accidental the birth of the kind of proto obama care, romney care in massachusetts was. what happened there was a buddy of his tom, the founder of staples, you know, kind of casually mentioned to mitt when he was coming in as governor that, you know, some doctors over at mass general were having trouble dealing with their uninsured and there wasn't any kind of internal, you know, deep ideological commitment to making this happen. >> very much sort of the accidental tourist. >> totally. >> in terms of politics. we have to go. the other thing we didn't talk about, jonathan, mitt romney sort of an ac crow nistic 1950s character in an america proven to be a very very different place than the 1950sing and '60s, a browner, more female, younger and more fired up. >> and a little more progressive. the problem mitt romney had, he brought confidence or he thought he did, but he was rutterless. the compete
states, the u.s. has also been targeting al qaeda. and in fact in december of 2009 the obama administration opened their campaign of bombing attacks against what they believed to be al qaeda targets in yemen. so on december 14, 2009, this is about -- obviously about 11 days before the christmas day attack, secretary of state clinton added al qaeda in the arabian peninsula to the terrorist list, named them an official terrorist organization, and then three days later the u.s. carried out its first attack. so it was in southern yemen and ibrahim mentioned this in his remarks. it was on a village and what the u.s. thought was that there was an al qaeda training camp and they knew some of the operatives who were there and so they had u.s. naval ships off the coast of yemen that fired missiles equipped with cluster bombs into what they believed to be a al qaeda training camp. unfortunately for the u.s., this turned out to be a bedouin village in which several or a few al qaeda members were hiding. there were 55 casualties during the first round i have a tax. so this happened sort
obama, what do you want, president obama won the popular vote, three and a half million. he won the electoral college by 126-vote margin. that's pretty substantial. he won eight out of nine battleground states. only lost north carolina by less than 100,000 votes. democrats picked up, held on to the senate and everybody said they were going to lose it. not only held on to the senate, picture up two seats in the senate and democrats picture up eight to ten seats -- some seats are still not called yet. in the house of representatives. so it was a romp for democrats. they didn't take back control of the house. but there's no doubt about it. the american people rejected romney and ryan. all right. talk about good democratic members of the congress, back in town barbara lee from california is and she'll be here today. so will donna edwards from the state of maryland and of course, eliot spitzer host of "viewpoint" on current tv joins us as he does every wednesday morning. and here's the deal. here's the question. one fin
. and republicans in ohio haven't learned anything. tonight state senator nina turner on today's republican vote to defund planned parenthood. >> good to you have with us tonight. thanks for watching. absence of arrogance. president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first new conference since winning the president once again pipts the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure for reelection. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. if there was one thing that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced responsible approach and part of that included making sure the wealth yet americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan with this whole game, with all the card out in the open and on the table. you
. >> it's pretty clear that the president was re-elected. obama care is the law of the land. >> it's happening it, and there's nothing they can do about it. right now, states are deciding how to implement a key part of the law. states can either set up exchanges for people to buy insurance or let the federal government do it for them. you think that choice would be easy for republican governors, given how much they hate the federal government. >> we don't like when the federal government comes and shoves things down our throat. >> sadly, the hardest part of my job continues to be this federal government. >> i mean all the states are actually under assault by this federal government. they are under assault by this federal government. >> so dwhae these governors decide? rick perry and his buddies are letting the feds set up their exchanges. they don't want the federal government to have any control over health care. so now they're letting the federal government have more control over health care. these republican politicians have tied themselves into knots trying to deal with the law
of representatives, president obama won the electoral vote. pretty solid. he won the popular vote, which is decisive. he won eight out of nine of the battleground states that we were told they were so close, they could have gone to mitt romney. host: where the polls wrong? what is going on? -- were the polls wrong? what is going on? guest: every night on the news, what led the news. -- what led the news? the latest gallup poll. they have not been right since they were wrong in 1946. i must say, nate got it right on the blog. host: good morning. caller: i noticed throughout the campaigning that republican politicians have like complete contempt for the republican voter. mitt romney went to ohio and told a horrible, embarrassing lie. that tells me that they feel the republican voter is someone to be led by the nose, who can be manipulated, who can be fooled. is that what mitt romney did so poorly? host: thank you. guest: i do not think they were taking the republican voters for granted. i think they failed to reach beyond the republican base, the way i saw it. what mitt romney and paul ryan were doing
for wisconsin or a certain state. e he picked me for issues, for taking on the debt crisis. we had hoped to win wisconsin. he fought very hard for wisconsin. we cut president obama's lead in half, but nevertheless, it wasn't enough. what it became clear to us as things went on, when virginia and ohio weren't coming together, it looked to me some time early in the evening that it just wasn't going to happen. >> that's his reflection. but moving ahead, speaker boehner was asked whether paul ryan would be the leader of the party. he referred to him as the wonky guy. what are we to make of paul ryan? >> he is the wonky guy. that was a dismissive comment that the speaker made. what he was trying to say is that he's coming back here, the same guy, as when he left. he's going to be a voice on certain issues, but he's not going to be a leader in the party. >> thank you very much. a pleasure having both of you on today. thank you. >>> coming up, john maca fee, he's wanted for questioning in the murder of his neighbor. details ahead. >>> and just moments ago, president obama finished meeting with labor l
said you couldn't have made this case up. >> president obama will likely nominate u.n. ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. >>> the founder of the mcafee software company is wanted for questioning in a murder. mcafee hasn't been seen since. >>> a scandal on "sesame street." the puppeteer who performs as elmo admitted to having a relationship with a teenager. >>> a flight in brazil almost ended in tragedy. every dramatic moment, all of it captured on camera. >> oh! >> unbelievable pass for a touchdown! the steelers survive in overtime 16-13. >> all all that matters. >> you struggle for about three months to get this ticket going. losing never feels good. >> on "cbs this morning." >> general petraeus had an affair with his biographer, which means from now on, he'll only be having sex with his auto biographer. captioning funded by cbs >>> welcome to "cbs this morning." while you were sleeping, the scandal that brought down david petraeus spread in an unexpected new direction. the pentagon investigating what it calls inappropriate communications from gener
zelig. austin goolsbee, former chairman of the council of economic investors under president obama, and michael boskin, who spoke last night as chief economic advisor for george h. w. bush. we have a whole world to spend. i want to start out with the united states. very few people in this room understand the president as well as us. many are asking -- what is going to come? i would like to look through the fiscal cliff and ask you to describe for us how you see the budget negotiations playing out over the next six months. >> it feels to me like they always had a deal last year. the principal bottleneck was not that the president was on willing to offer cuts. it was that there was a group of republicans in the house who would not go for the revenue. i think that is still the bottle neck now. you probably saw the article this morning from hubbard. i take from this collection some optimism of 2013 and the way that might play out, whether we go or do not go over the fiscal cliff, we get to some space where if they did $1 trillion in cuts and reforms it was $1 trillion on discretionary,
. and it was litigated on the tax issue and on the tax issue obama won the argument. moving into the fiscal cliff situation, he has a strong hand. the public is with him. >> bill: right. 49% say states should legally recognize same-sex marriages. >> of course, you saw big wins in maryland, defeated in minnesota. so moving forward -- maine -- so moving forward. that's the first time that you saw -- put it to a popular vote. those issues go forward. the numbers nationally are still divided but again i think a pivotal moment and those numbers again with the demographics will only grow and grow and grow. >> bill: on immigration reform, which i found interesting, of course, the difference is president obama had a comprehensive immigration reform package. mitt romney said people should self-deport. 65% of americans in this -- a week ago today said most illegal immigrants should be offered a chance to apply for citizenship. not sent back to mexico or wherever. >> you saw right after the election, prominent republicans come out and say okay, w
kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ever since then, root beer has flowed from the water fountains here at 30 rock and there has not been a cloudy day. >> and recess has been extended by 15 minutes. you're welcome america and 30 rocks. >> all lollipops and sunshine. congratulation on 8,760 hours in that seat and good luck on the next 8,760 hours. >> tha
obama with 55% of the vote. 184 women ran for congressional office this year, and 40% of the u.s. population now has at least one woman senator. there is no longer an all-male state legislature anywhere in the country. nowhere. new hampshire, which is also my home away from home, now has an all women congressional delegation. and a woman governor, as well as a female statehouse and state senate leader. they are not both democrats, that's ok. they are still women. we are moving in the right direction. and this is my favorite, on the 113th congress, gavels in in january, it will be an all-time high of 20 women senators and 81 women in the house of representatives. [applause] >> this is awesome. now, that is particularly gratifying given that we came off -- i remember being on a -- in a similar discussion just two years ago just lamenting and agonizing that we had dropped the number of women in congress for the first time since 1982 after the 2010 elections. some of us thought, oh, my gosh, how did we lose the momentum? how are we going to get it back? it's so critical. there was
results and says losing never feels good. >>> president obama may be asking senator john kerry to be his next secretary of defense. now, there are reports that john considerry would prefer to be secretary of state butfullies say that job will almost certainly be offered to susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. >>> and now there are some voters in about two dozen states who say they want to su seed from the united states -- secede from the united states. >>> weigh want to check in with sal. how -- we want to check in with sal. how are things looking there? >> we're seeing building traffic on 101. it's not really as bad as it has been. i've been checking off the list that the chp give us. stalled vehicles. but not a lot going on in the san jose area. there's still traffic to be there. not only there but 101 northbound as you come across the capital expressway. the morning commute will be more crowded at the bay bridge toll plaza. it's backed up for 20, 25 minutes. if you are driving in hayward, southbound is crowded down to the stevenson road exit. traffic is gonna be a li

[applause] millions of women's votes that helped us elect a record number of women to the congress of the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. we saw some of these faces yesterday among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time a parliamentary body would have a party who had a majority of women and minorities. we are very proud of that. we said yesterday, we did not have majority but we have the gavel. excuse me -- but we do not have the gavel. [laughter] we have something more important -- we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrates that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters -- when i came to congress 25 years ago there were 23 members of congress who were women out of 445. just think of that. 12 democrats, 11 republicans,
to help him. president obama's committed to comprehensive immigration reform. i looked the other day, 90% of hispanics have parents or grandparents who immigrated to the united states from another country. that's why the republicans should be afraid. ther they should help us -- >> i don't think they have to be afraid. >> mitt romney talked about self-deportation, that turned off a lot of folks out there. >> i think self-deportation is what president obama did when he cratered the economy and kept it struggling. no jobs for people to come here to get. >> you can't exactly blame the president -- he inherited a pretty bad economy. >> he did. but he's also deported more illegal aliens than any president in american history. >> executive order came back. >> but democrats are winning the hispanic vote, why? it's not just tone. it's because of the approach you take. this is a country for everybody. not one group or another group. but this is a country for everybody. that's who the republican party has always been. we just need to remember who we are. >> didn't romney 'em base sb-1070? that also

. nearly 30% of rhode island's residents were directly affected by this storm. president obama granted governor chafee's request for a federal disaster declaration in four of ourte's five counties. more than 130 rhode islanders lost power, and eight cities and towns were forced to implement evacuations. the whole state will be affected by the as of yet unknown millions in damage and lost business. but rhode island is resilient. some businesses hit hard by sandy and the subsequent nor'easter have already reopened. others are working hard to reopen soon. here we can see the atlantic avenue from the sky, and the owners of paddy's beach restaurant here as well as their neighbors all along the beach are determined to reopen for the summer tourist season. i remember walking through this little notch here with the owners of paddy's and looking at this scene of devastation beside and the owner saying that's not so bad. we can rebuild. we'll be back on our feet in no time. and they already had friends and volunteers on site with hammers and shovels and saws cleaning up and getting things put ri
